Kete Te Reo Maori


This section provides members with resources which may assist in providing a culturally appropriate environment in schools. NZPF supports the view that Maori children be provided with a school environment that takes account of their culture, their identity as Maori and provides a learning environment that fits with Maori culture. Maori children should have the opportunity to learn and succeed as Maori.
